Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Let's face it: everyone has a favorite pillow. These personalized pillowcases make any pillow all the more special and they are a great activity for slumber parties.


  • Fabric crayons
  • Nonglossy paper
  • Pillowcase (synthetic or synthetic blend)
  • Ironing board and iron
  • Thin cardboard
  • Fabric pens, optional


Customized Pillowcases - Step 1

1. Using fabric crayons, trace (or draw) a picture on non-glossy paper. All writing must be in mirror image (with the letters backward).

2. Slip the pillowcase onto the ironing board and place the design face down. (To prevent the design from bleeding onto the ironing board, place a piece of cardboard between the pillowcase and the ironing board cover.)

3. Press a medium-hot iron straight down on the design, hold for 1 second and lift off. Repeat until the design has been transferred to the pillowcase

4. Remove the pillowcase from the ironing board and then outline the design with a black fabric pen, if desired.
